  • E-Mart, Super Mart, Mega Mart

    Nice topic!

    I go to the supermarket 1-2 times a week. The items in my cart varies, but a week's worth of vegetables and fruits makes up the bulk of content (a weekly must). Then there are pantry staples like dried noodles, rice, distilled water, pasta, pasta sauce, dried seaweed, cereals, teas, eggs, toufu, ect.

    What about you Nic?

    I go once or twice a week too

    Staples include soya bean milk, Ribena, any biscuits that catches our eyes, noodles (instant, udon), beehoon (hubby's must have), glutinous rice (hubby's must have), rice.

    Towards the end of the week, I may buy more "proper" food like eggs, fish, poultry, tofu.... depending on what I am cooking over the weekend, if I am cooking

        <li> How often do you go supermart?
        When I was still working at Tanjong Pagar, I go to the supermart almost everyday during lunch time!! Now, I only visit the mart once per week or fortnightly.

        <li> What can the usual items in your shopping ?
        HL milk, cereal, instant noodles, hotdogs, tea, coffee, bread, peanut butter, apples, chips and biscuits. As for vegetables and meats, I usually leave it to my mum, especially since she can sometimes get it cheaper from the wet (or wholesale) market.

                              Can't believe I said cuttlefish sticks! so funny!

                              I am no fan of any particular brand. I usually choose one that gives the simplist instructions!
